Different types of dendrites process incoming information in different ways before sending it to the body of the neuron.
Grid cell dysfunction in the entorhinal cortex may explain why people with a genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease have problems with navigation.
The posterior hippocampus tracks distance to a newly learned location, as well as familiar environments. By contrast, when navigating a familiar location, the retrosplenial cortex takes over responsibility for tracking distance. The findings shed light on how the brain navigates and encodes spatial information.
A new study sheds light on how our brain stores long term spatial memories. Researchers have identified a specific pattern of neural activity in the retrosplenial cortex when our brains are in the process of storing spatial memories.
A new study reveals how patterns of neural activity in the retrosplenial cortex assist with navigation and spatial memory.
Researchers report two neural networks broadly overlap in people who intentionally let their minds wander.
